Theme: Intersectionality

Intersectionality is the interconnected and indivisible nature of social identities such as age and generation, ethnicity, affectional identity, gender, disAbility, socioeconomic status, religion and spirituality, body size (and many more).

These intersections of identity and lived experience create overlapping and interdependent systems of marginalization, discrimination, disadvantage, as well as privilege and hidden biases.

The SAIGE 2020 Virtual Conference seeks to bring awareness to intersectionality in order to expand our multicultural competence as an organization and to help our members with developing their awareness of attitudes and beliefs, knowledge, skills, and action that will improve the cultural competence and quality of counseling with our clients and students.
